This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of barrel, chocolate, vanilla, and legit cookies. Flavor similar, a little sweet, but should be, I can’t believe it really tastes like there’s cookies in this. Art (3217) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2015
On tap at FoBAB. Pours a dark brown black without any head. Aromas of vanilla and chocolate. Very remeniscent of an Oreo aroma or cookies and cream. Taste is sweet but not overly so. Unexpectedly enjoyable. charule (2268) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2015
On tap at FOBAB 2015 listed as Kookie Monster. Score and notes from notepad. Pored black with min head. Aroma very sweet vanilla cookie dough choc. Light carb med bod. Taste similar to aroma, the cookies are definitely in there, barrel tastes a back seat. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft on tap at Polar Beer Fest 2014 (Chicago, IL). Pours athicker luscious blackish brown hue. Good haziness, some dulled brownish glow on the edges and bottom. No real head, skant negligible loose stick around and lacing. Aromas are sweet, double stuff oreo cookies, cocoa and vanilla. Some roast, toast, and toffee. Cream, vanilla, and touch of marshmallow. Just a touch of oak, but fairly negligible as the sweeter treatment takes over. Initial is definitely in line with it’s treatment, preaching Oreo cookies, cream and vanilla. Some vanilla bean, creamy sweetness shows cocoa, cookie, and biscuit. Middle is sweeter, creamy, and luscious. A lack of carbonation makes it a bit flabby and emphasizes the sweetness a bit more. Still, I don’t find it sticky or messy. Just a bit unkempt perhaps. Overall, the flavors are good and it really doesn’t find it’s way into the sweet sticky realm you’d think. Perhaps the barrel, which stayed in the background for the most part for me through the experience, aided with this. Some fine tuning on the carbonation (likely messed up by the treatment) could make this a pretty impressive beer. Tastes good as is, hard pressed to drink more than a small glass.
